Pioneer Parkway Trail

In June 2007, the City completed the Pioneer Parkway Trail Alternative Study that explored two potential options to construct a trail located generally on the west/south side of Pioneer Parkway from NW 62nd Avenue to Merle Hay Road. The major difference between the two options was that Option “A” meandered more onto private property than Option “B” to avoid as many of the existing trees as possible.

In 2007, the City started a master plan study for the redevelopment of Terra Park. The master plan created a 200-acre park with an 8-acre fishing lake surrounded by a great lawn for concerts and games, an open-air civic shelter for large gatherings, a picnic pavilion, smaller shelters, a fishing pier, trails, children’s play structures that are handicap accessible, and numerous native plantings. Terra Park construction started in 2014 and concluded in 2018.

Since the completion of the Terra Park construction, the City prioritize and restarted the discussion to provide better pedestrian/recreational mobility to Terra Park along Pioneer Parkway. In February and March 2019, three trail concepts were developed as potential solutions to provide mobility along Pioneer Parkway.

You are invited to join us for a public information meeting on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the Crown Point Community Center located at 6300 Pioneer Parkway in Johnston to discuss this project. The intent of this meeting is to share initial trail concepts with the community and to solicit potential opportunities from your perspective that may exist in the corridor. Representatives from the City and the design team will be present to listen and gather your input.
